🙂 Okay so maybe you know me too well, but today is not just any ordinary day, it’s Themed Furniture Thursday! I and a bunch of my talented furniture flippin’ friends get together once a month and share furniture makeovers, but the catch is, there’s a theme! I usually do my thrifting on the way to places I really need to be. It was so fun, one of my favorite ways to spend a day.
How about I’ll share and then see if you can guess, okay? Well last Thursday, I decided to treat myself and have an all day thrifting excursion.
Any other issues are barely worth mentioning other than that the 18 buttons which were removed for cleaning (yes they will come with the gown) will now need to be cleaned, or re-covered as they are darker than the gown... The gown measures approx: 58 " long from shoulder to hem in the back, 63" long from shoulder to hem in the front, 107" long from shoulder to hem in the back with the vest on. There are large silk slits (shattering) in one mutton sleeve and a number of small ones on the other sleeve and on the skirt (including one fairly long slit at skirt back - at the skirt bustle fold) and the skirt waist has come ungathered at the skirt back.

As this gown has had a previous life, I like the idea that there is something tangible to remind you of previous bride... There are EXTREMELY LIGHT, BARELY SEEN underarm discolorations. only if you are inspecting the gown under bright lights. LOVE the puffy sleeves (which can be worn stuffed as you see, or worn "deflated" as the previous bride wore it (see photos). Connelly gold damask and cream satin gown to the White House New Year’s reception in 1880!!!! And not only that, but this was her dressmaker of choice (per Feb. I'm sure this bride would have decorated this gown with wax flowers as was the fashion back then. I have a few large closeup photos of the lace for you to tell me!
the only obvious one is the front skirt where the bride obviously slightly snagged the satin with her bouquet. but I believe they were originally around the lower skirt as there is still ONE that remains there. Now I'm not a lace expert, but this lace looks like handmade Duchesse to my untrained eye.
Note: the gown is shorter in the back than the front... It's a tiny gown, so my mannequin is a bit too large for it, but it closes fine up the back.
